Ingredients

  • 3 cups broccoli florets
  • 2 cups cauliflower florets
  • 2 cups chicken breasts, cooked and chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast or Parmesan cheese
  • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon of pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 3 oz cheddar cheese,

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
  2. In a pot, add the cauliflower and just about cover florets with water.
  3. Cook until the cauliflower can be pierced with a fork.
  4. Meanwhile microwave the broccoli for 4 minutes.
  5. Add broccoli and chicken to a large bowl.
  6. When the cauliflower is done, strain but save the water in case your sauce is too thick.
  7. Add the cauliflower, olive oil, nutritional yeast and spices to a high speed blender and blend until smooth. You may need to add a bit of the cooking water to thin it out. You want it to be the consistency of a sauce and not mashed potatoes.
  8. Mix the cauliflower cream with the chicken and broccoli and spoon into a baking dish.
  9. Top with shredded cheese and bake for 20 minutes.
